Who was Martha Williams w/o Joel Halbert

Who was Martha Williams parents. Martha was the first wife of Joel Halbert. I am descended from Joel and Martha's daughter Frances. Frances married John W. Smith and moved to Lincoln County, TN with the rest of the Halbert/Davis/Higgins/Clayton families.

Where were they married? I've heard [unconfirmed] that Martha was the daughter of a judge or other official of the day. So far I've found no proof that Martha ever existed. No wills or marriage records in NC or VA???

Thanks,
Kenneth Smith
Lincoln Co., TN
